Can Crossfit Help You Swim Better?
BURNED OUT ON SWIMMING

Most of us who swam for a Junior college or University experienced the "burnout" feeling towards the latter part of our career. It was a feeling of relief that we did not have to look at the skinny black line nonstop for 1,000's of yards of pain. There was a small minority who thrived on the sport and kept competing even after their intense college experience.

For me, I needed a new outlet; I was over swimming. It was a great sport which shaped me into the mentally tough athlete I am today, but it had worn so much on me I could care less if I ever jumped into a cold pool again for anything short of a cool off on a hot summer day...

We are human interesting

Local news in San Diego has begun to take notice and ask questions

Big week here at Waterfi! The last few days a couple local News reporters have started asking questions about the waterproof gadgets they see around town and those reporting skills have led them back to Waterfi. Joe Little from San Diego ABC 10 soaked up some sun with our president Royce to get some answers.

Joe earned himself a very special place in our hearts for sacrificing that beautiful suit in the name of professional jounalism. Right behind the ABC 10 team was the CW San Diego 6 and Nancy Aziz

In a recent interview posted on OCinSite.com she talks about what training to be an olympic caliber athlete looks like, why she thinks rowing would be a great workout choice for anybody and a few gear recommendations to get a head start on the olympic dream.

Kitesurfing with Pro Patrick Rebstock

How does the Waterfi stand up against the intense conditions of kitesurfing?!

Our buddy Patrick Rebstock's skills pretty much speak for themselves in this video. But in case you were wondering how the Waterfi withstands salt water or the more rigorous, challenging sports, here you go!

According to an article by kitesurf aficionado Jakob Jelling, kitesurfing dates all the way back to 13th century China when people were using Kitesailing as a "simple method of transportation" harvesting windpower to propel conoes and such. Over the centuries different forms of kites have been used to propel various types of vehicles over land as well as water. But It wasn't until the 1990's in Hawaii when kitesurfing--as it is more known today--was introduced to the surfing and wakeboarding community in Maui. Since then, it ihas become one of the fastest growing water sports in the world. An interesting fact about the dynamics of kitesurfing is that although kites do depend on the wind to achieve initial lift, once a kite is in the air it "manufactures its own wind, which is proportionately faster and creates a higher rate of speed for the vehicle."

Rest assured that no matter how much air you achieve or how hard of a salt watery-pounding you may take out there, the Waterfi will stay your ever faithful friend to keep you pumped.
